“Absolutely riveting . . . A masterpiece. I defy anyone to foresee the outcome.”—Ruth Rendell
The year is 1921. A passionate affair between voracious romance reader Alma Webster and her dentist, Walter Baranov, has led to his wife’s murder. The lovers take flight aboard the Mauretania and the dentist takes the name of Inspector Dew, the detective who arrested the notorious wifekiller Dr. Crippen. But, in a disquieting twist, a murder occurs aboard ship and the captain invites “Inspector Dew” to investigate.
The False Inspector Dew
Took 100 or so pages to come together. The background stories were somewhat confusing as the story jumped from character to character. Once it came together, the story was very entertaining with a great ending.
